 #1 says it all. I've told my wife that if I ever, ever wake up one morning consumed with the idea of putting on brightly colored spandex and then going out to play in traffic... that she is to immediately take me to the nearest mental health facility.

 Honestly I have no idea how #2 won photo of the year. Obviously subjective, but even #5 in this list looks better.
  • + 28
 that awkward moment when photo of the year doesnt even get the most views in one month...

 5 is better than 2? Are we looking at the same pictures? wtf

 The landing on the gap is dodgy as well, short, loose and a great many things to hit, and If you come up short, let's just say, you really don't want to come up short

 dont know how that inferiority complex MTBers over Roadies has existed for so long
  • + 3
 I don't think it has anything to do with the sport itself, but rather the SPANDEX outfits on men. Kind of like showing up on a public beach wearing a speedo.

 @vokes: No, it's the sport. I used to ride road, but I won't go back unless I need to train. I spend far too much time on concrete and pavement. I need the tonic of being out in nature. It feeds the soul. And, to top it off, the excitement of trail riding hands down beats the monotony of being on the road. +1 MTB
  • + 1
 haha, it might be little bit of both

anyway that "excitement" of the trail you are talking about, a similar exciment could be felt in road biking, the only problem is that you need to be in top performance to fully enjoy it, if you are not fit, is just like riding a bike to the store, but being at the top of your performance climbing a step road, sweating, knowing you prepared yourself for it, knowing that you can beat it, is just as exciting as going down a trail on an MTB.

In other words MTB is the path of least resistance toward fully enjoyment in Cycling.

 those roadies. They dont look like normal roadies with stick arms. All of em have big ol biceps.
  • + 6
 Maybe its too early in the season for stick arms. They haven't started weighing their food yet.

 The day before the race was arm day.

 You know some of those spandex-wearers complained to the race organizer about the dude skying over the top of them. Those dudes are WAY too anal-retentive to let something like that slide
